Yes the AMT kit. Everything was great with the kit. The only issues was fitting the chassis in the body. The front was about an eighth of an inch above the mounting points on the frame so I applied the glue and used twist ties to draw it down tight and left it to dry for a day.
Also thinned down the the trunk emblem before installing.
Painting the body color onto the headlight bezels is a bit tricky too.

Looks great. Find a nice spot on the shelf to display it. I had an uncle with a blue-green '56 Chrysler.

That looks great! And the tip for twist ties gets a "thanks/ why didn't I think of it"

I use the long plastic coated ones like are used for electronic cords that are on them when new.
I also have a collection of clip clothespins and the black spring clips used to hold bundles of office papers together to hold glued parts together.
